Recipe: High Protein Chocolate Truffle

Macros: 227 calories, 26.8g protein, 18.5g carbs and 4.7g fat.

Makes 8

? 100g Cauliflower
? 25g Chocolate Protein Powder (I used Reflex Instant Whey)
? 5g Cocoa
? 15g Coconut Flour
? 5g Stevia
? Desiccated Coconut for rolling

1. Chop the cauliflower into small pieces and boil or steam for about 5 minutes or until tender.

2. Puree the cauliflower until smooth and pasty.

3. Add the chocolate protein powder and mix until combined. Now something magical/strange seems to happen at this point. Where as normally when you add a dry ingredient the mixture thickens up, adding the protein powder actually makes it runnier... if anyone sciencey wants to explain this then that would be great!

4. Stir in the cocoa, coconut flour and stevia and mix until thick enough to roll into little balls (add more coconut flour if you need to).

5. Divide the mixture into 8 and roll into truffle-sized balls.

6. Coat in desiccated coconut or some more cocoa powder and leave to set in the fridge for a couple of hours.
